WATERVLIET – Dylan Goering ended up at St. Colman’s autism program in Watervliet as a last resort. The 12-year-old’s needs were too much for the small Green Island School District to handle and he was rejected by the local BOCES program for his aggression.
St. Colman’s seemed like a good choice, said her mother Amanda Nacco. Dylan adored his teachers, assistants, and classmates, and his communication and behavioral skills improved. Then COVID-19 arrived.
